If you want to see the future, read science fiction comic books or novels, because the fiction of the past is becoming the reality of today. For those of us who were born in the first half of the last century (and yes, there are still some of us actively practising construction law!), we can look back to the days of the Dick Tracy comic books to recall the impossible concept of a wristwatch-type device that Dick Tracy could talk into like a telephone and see images on like a television. Imagine that! Or imagine spaceships landing on the moon or planets, or futuristic novels with cover illustrations of cities where people commuted in flying taxis and autonomous vehicles. These and many other images were all visions of a future that no one at that time realistically believed were achievable. After all, they were fiction.
